It was not supposed to be this way.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was going to be the Democrat who ushered in the socialist transformation of America.
But Ocasio-Cortez looked on in horror as her world came crashing down because of this horrible news.
Pundits claimed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s brand of socialism was the future of America.
So-called “reporters” of fake news media outlets nodded approvingly as the freshmen Democrat set the pace for the party.
Ocasio-Cortez proposed defunding ICE, the Marxist 93 trillion dollar “Green New Deal,” and unconstitutional wealth taxes of 70 percent on incomes over ten million dollars.
The media claimed these policies were wildly popular and that Republicans were on the losing end of a generational fight to determine the course of America’s destiny.
But they were all wrong.
A recent Gallup poll found that just 31 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of Ocasio-Cortez compared to 41 percent of Americans who disapprove of her.
But the fake news claimed Americans only soured on Ocasio-Cortez because the conservative media trashed her reputation with a smear campaign endorsed by the Republicans.
And Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that her approval numbers were in the toilet because of racism and sexism.
“When “centrists” care more about the GOP base than the Dem base, bigotry gets legitimized. This is *the* playbook. GOP does it w/ virtually every Dem figure who isn’t a white male: otherize, demonize + splinter. It’s vital that we adapt & dismantle this approach, not cow to it,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
Ocasio-Cortez continued, “We can’t gloss over it, or quietly consider that the “shrewd” thing to do is nominate someone who won’t be subject to bigoted attacks. Morally, we can’t give a pass to this dangerous tactic. But even politically, the Dem base is all the people you demoralize by not standing up.”
It was all lies.
And the proof came in the form of a Siena College poll in her home state of New York.
Residents of Deep Blue New York – including residents of every age group – had soured on Ocasio-Cortez.
Just 31 percent of New Yorkers held a favorable view of Ocasio-Cortez versus 44 percent who disapproved of her.
Astonishingly, just 47 percent of New York Democrats approve of Ocasio-Cortez.
And these aren’t Fox News viewers or listeners of Rush Limbaugh’s radio program who disapprove of her.
It’s the Democrats in one of the Deepest Blue states in the nation giving the cold shoulder to Ocasio-Cortez.
This is terrible news for the Democrat Party.
Every time Ocasio-Cortez announces a hair-brained socialist scheme, the party’s top 2020 Presidential contenders fall all over themselves to endorse it.
But they are tying themselves at the hip to an unpopular politician with an unpopular agenda.
This is happening because the Democrats take their cues from the fake news media.
So-called “reporters” think that since they spend all day on twitter, that twitter is real life.
And they convince themselves that the narratives they spin to each other on social media all day is real life.
But as Ocasio-Cortez’s highly unfavorable ratings demonstrate both nationally and in New York, the fake news reporters who support her are way out of sync with the country.
